The show opens in a world where the two friends are already bitter rivals, running a nightclub each – Vibe (Sahil) and Rehab (Vicky), both doing anything to put each other down. Explained through a brief flashback, the show doesn’t waste time taking one through unnecessary details about their relationship prior to them parting ways. Their enmity is overpowering, not just for them but also for their respective girlfriends, Minaz and Rhea as well. Everyone around them be it in the personal sphere or the professional sphere can feel the heat of their hatred towards each other. (Bar Code Review)

Since the show is set in the backdrop of Mumbai city and each of the leading stars owns a nightclub, the show gives the audience a glimpse of Mumbai’s glittery nightlife. The intoxicated people have no idea about what is happening in the ‘personnel only’ areas of these extravagant nightclubs.

The best thing about this series is that it doesn’t have any dull moment. This show has been designed to give a movie like an experience and that adds to the overall impact. Apart from the storyline, music plays an important part in the series, the show’s tone is set by its title sequence track, ‘Gumrah Taare’. (Bar Code Review)
